Last Week in Talent - June 26, 2017

The wheel of the talent acquisition machine never stops turning and last week was no exception, with Yello, Textio, and Sense all grabbing new rounds of funding, Todoist releasing a Slack-competitor called Twist, and Google for Jobs launching its quest to become the one job board to rule them all. In other news, it turns out women-founded companies have more women employees, the so-called skills gap might be a lot of hot air, and Unilever is tossing resumes in favor of algorithms.



Last Week in Talent - June 20, 2017

Hello friends!

This is Last Week in Talent, where yours truly runs down all the most interesting, important and intriguing talent and recruiting-related information from the last week in recruiting and hiring. 

In case you missed it, Entelo (yes, us!) announced our Series C round last week (ps, we're hiring), Amazon announced they are buying Whole Foods (for the estimated equivalent of 3.7 billion bottles of Kumbucha), Careerbuilder just got bought, Wordpress is closing their super nice SF (office because no one actually uses it), McDonalds is using Snapchat to recruit, Facebook is teaching machines to negotiate with humans, Slack is raising a $500M megaround and Culture Amp announced that they had raised a $20M Series C.



Entelo Raises $20 Million Series C Funding Round

We are proud to announce today that Entelo has closed its Series C financing (press release below and link to TechCrunch article here). This new funding will help move us further toward our vision of building the best technology to empower the modern recruiter. We'll be using the capital to deepen our investment in data science, machine learning, and AI and to build even better products that help to give companies a competitive advantage when it comes to finding talent. Entelo is also opening up a New York office as part of its expansion.

We couldn't be more thrilled about the future and what lies ahead for Entelo and for our industry. We will have more exciting announcements in the coming months and look forward to talking with you about our plans soon. And we're hiring

Last Week in Talent: June 12, 2017

Summer has arrived! Which means if you have a pool you spent all weekend working on your tan, sipping pina coladas and blasting Hall and Oates (or maybe that was just me). If not, you probably did everything in your power to stay cool (Hello three shower days!)

But content never tires and the War for Talent is showing no signs of cooling off, so welcome to a sunny and summery edition of Last Week in Talent. 



3 Great HR & Talent Conferences You Can Still Attend This Month

Believe it or not, it’s not too late to lock in your attendance at three awesome conferences happening later this month.

Depending on your location, SHRM’s Annual Confab in New Orleans, The Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference in Boston, or Talent42 in Seattle could be just what the doctor ordered to give your talent acquisition and recruiting the jolt it needs as you head into the summer doldrums.

Each event features top-notch speakers, sessions, attendees and networking that will have you delivering ROI like it’s going out of style. Read one for all of the details and then it’s up to you to choose which one is the best rocketship for your particular trip to the recruiting stratosphere and back.



Last Week in Talent - June 5, 2017

Hello friends! I’m just back from a splendid vacation in beautiful and surprisingly sunny Ireland, so today’s Last Week in Talent will be slightly briefer than usual. So, my deepest apologies for that, but trust me when I say that what I do have is pretty darn good, so be sure to dive in for all the best data, insight and news this side of Timbuktu. Please and thank you. Now, without further ado, here's what we're cooking with in the wide world of talent, recruiting and everything in between.

Happy hunting and thanks for reading.
